There is No Cure for Washington’s Arrogance

Public health leaders are calling for the appointment of a commission to investigate the failures of Covid-19 policies.

Why were so many smart people so servile and intolerant during Covid-19 crackdowns? Federal pandemic follies were the natural result of the swagger of America’s self-proclaimed Best and Brightest.

From the start, resistance to Covid edicts was taken as proof of ignorance or depravity. When anti-lockdown protestors rallied in the Spring of 2020, the media derided them. A Democratic congressional candidate proclaimed his hope that Covid would “disproportionately kill many” of the demonstrators – a sentiment echoed by many people on social media.
